For all of you contemplating on whether you should get you BSN degree...DEFINITELY! Whether it's before you've started working or after you started working, DO IT! The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) says that surgical patients have a "substantial survival advantage" if treated in hospitals with higher proportions of nurses educated at the baccalaureate or higher degree level. GO to http://www.aacn.nche.edu/Media/NewsReleases/2003AikenStudy.htm FOR MOR INFO! Yeah, those ADN's may have some pretty good technical skills, but BSN prepared nurses will have the skills and the extensive knowledge background. GO NURSES!
